Today is the day to celebrate the wonderful woman who brought me into the world! She's not the type who enjoys being celebrated, but she is definitely the type that deserves celebrating. In a short 45 years, she has built an incredible marriage, an inviting home, and a loving family.
I can't think of anything better to aspire to than being like my mom. She is never too far to help, but she keeps enough distance to let me do my own thing and make my own mistakes when I need to learn the hard way. She's always supportive, but knows when to bring reality to a situation. Like only a mother does, she knows just what is needed and when.
This could be a really long post, but if you don't know her you won't care, and if you do know her you don't need me to tell you all this. So happy birthday, Mom!
